Dude, have you ever driven any of the cars in question out of curiosity? I'm not flamming you, just asking.Originally posted by humara
hey, i'm not debating the handling of the car. i'm merely saying you could get similar handling on several cars toyota makes. the matrix has the same wheelbase and suspension. holds quite a bit more stuff and/or people.
i would say platform engineering is a pretty popular topic and I'm not the only one interested in it. its a necessary evil in the auto industry. hell, the 350z shares the same platfrom with altima, maxima, quest, murano, g35, g35 coupe, etc...
i dont understand why you would just swear and tell me there is no reason to this conversation.
i'm sure your car is great handling. i'm not sure what you mean by putting up a great fight from a roll. i guess that's a nice way of saying getting beat? but hey, that's neither here nor there.
you have to say that the celica is nicer looking than a corolla or matrix or whatever else they decide to build off that platform. rav4.
but yeah, i'll uh stop saying **** for no reason. nice one.
My wife has an '03 Corolla. ARe you claiming that the Corolla handles about the same as the Celica GTS? If so, I strongly urge you to go up to Toyota - spend 1/2 hour, I guarantee you they'd let you test drive both cars if you put up a good front. When you're done actually comparing the mag info to real life experiences, come back and give us your real impressions.
I mean, if you seriously think those cars handle the same..lol, you read too much fiction I guess.
Also, stock Celica GTS traps around the same in the 1/4 mile as a WRX, if not slightly higher. So when he says "puts up a good fight" he means the GTS might actually edge out the WRX.
Honestly, you put up a good act in terms of trying to keep this conversation lighthearted, but then you throw in your little underhanded cheap shots. At least be real here...
